The beat continues to go on for the Westminster Wildcats. Westminster got solid production from its run and pass offense and another sturdy effort from its defense as the Wildcats stayed unbeaten for the fourth straight week with a 21-7 victory over visiting Metro League rival Mary Institute/Country Day School on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 13).
Westminster (4-0, 2-0), the number four rated small school in the area, broke on top in the first quarter using its ground game effectively as running back Steve Webb capped the Wildcats first scoring drive with an 8-yard touchdown run with 5:43 left in the first quarter.
MICDS (3-1, 2-1) came right back on the ensuing kickoff as running back Noble Tobias took the kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown tieing it 7-7 just 15 seconds later.
In the second quarter, Westminster turned to its passing attack to hit for big plays and points.
Two minutes into the quarter, the Wildcats found the end zone again as quarterback Brendan Bognor connected with Dyllan Conway on a 28-yard scoring strike putting Westminster back up seven points with 10 minutes left before the half.
Then in the final five minutes of the quarter, Bognar took to the air again. This time finding Casey Hinds open for a 26-yard touchdown toss and the Wildcats were up 21-7 with 4:32 left in the second quarter.
That was all the Wildcats would need as the Westminster defense kept Tobias and the MICDS offense held in check the final 28 minutes of play.
Westminster travels to Lutheran South for a Metro League game next Friday (Sept. 19) at 7 p.m. MICDS pays a visit to Priory for a Metro League contest next Saturday (Sept. 20).
